Charles Foster

Later, he wrote comedy material for many TV shows and for comedians like Bob Hope and Jack Benny. His first book, Stardust and Shadows, drew critical acclaim.

Reviews

Foster has done a wonderful job of documenting the lives of some of the personalities of the silent era who may otherwise have just as easily disappeared into obscurity.

Foster writes with an energetic clarity and a knack for character-revealing detail that bring these Canadian-born, often pivotal, figures to vivid life.
